I still can't get Acrobat to run.I tried uninstalling,rebooting,turning off virus protection,and reinstalling Acrobat 5.0 from website.Still the same thing-as soon as I try to open it,I get the 'ol ACRORD32 illegal operation and will be shut down,caused a problem in module unknown.I even borrowed a game installation disc with Acrobat 4.0 on it and I still have the same problem.I'm pretty much 'puter illiterate-help!

Go start/control panel then add/remove programs and see if you have more than one version of Adobe listed. If so remove the oldest.

This must be getting pretty old.

I read thru your other posts trying to firgure out which operating system you are using.

Which is it 95/98/me/2000 or xp?
Which version of Adobe Acrobat are you using?
Please post the exact error message you are recieving.

The Error message says ACRORD32 This program has performed an illegal function and will be shut down".
Clicking the "Details" box says " ACRORD32 caused an invalid page fault in module unknown at 0000:5020202e."
Under that is "Registers" and a buch of letters/numbers followed by "Bytes at CS EIP",then "stack dump"and a bunch more letters.
However,I just right clicked on the Adobe icon and selected "properties".
Under the "General" box it says "type-Shortcut"
C:\Windows\Desktop
MS-DOS name ACROBA"1LNK
Target Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 4.0 Reader\

When I select "find target",I get the same error message as I do when I just try to open Adobe except when I close the error message box I get this:
Cannot find the file C:\Program Files\Adobe Acrobat 4.0\Reader\ReadMe\pdf' or one of it's components.Make sure the path and file name are correct and that all required libraries are available.

OK,correction. When I click on the "shortcut" button,a Reader Window opens up with the following :
ActiveX browser'
Opitional plug ins
[c]Adobe Admus316
Acrofx32.dll
Acrols32.dll
Acrord 32
Agm.dll
Cooltype .dll
Readme

When I try to open the "Readme",thats when the other error message appears.

I encountered this error message when I launch Adobe Reader 5.0. - Acrord32 Caused an invalid page fault module acrord32.exe at 0177:004532102. After I close the Error window, the application continues to launch, then another error appears: The plug-in failed to initialize. Adobe reader finally launches but there are no menus (files, etc.) only tools.

The system is W98SE. Browser is Internet Explorer 5.01 sp2. I did the following: looked for older versions - none; uninstalled Adobe 5.0 and re-installed - still doesn't work; uninstalled Adobe 5.0, removed rements from the registeries and then re-installed. Still doesn't work. Note: Adobe Reader was working up until a week ago. Obviously something has changed but ?

Thanks
